These are ridiculously comfortable — almost as comfortable as my double gauze pair — because of the super soft, loose weave fabric from the Loominous collection by Anna Maria Horner. I fell in love with the fabric when I was watching Anna’s scarf class on Creativebug and she whipped out a piece of this fabric and kind of flung it through the air in slo-mo and I was like WHOA I MUST HAVE THAT and the rest is history. I even bought more yardage after making these pants so I can make a matching Ruby Top and maybe experience the jumpsuit phenomenon firsthand by wearing them together (I KNOW. Stay tuned). Anyway, here’s a closeup of the fabric:
The areas that have the basket weave pattern are particularly loosely-woven, which made the fabric a little difficult to work with, so I used a serger to finish all of the seams. I also interfaced the waistband, which you can see in the photos for the drawstring tutorial. Totally worth it to have such a comfortable pair of pants.
Obligatory rear view:
This here is pretty much my “mom” uniform. Tee, luna pants, Toms.
Have you made a pair of Luna Pants? Post your photos with the tag #lunapantsalong or add them to the Luna Pants photo pool. I’ll be doing a round up of all your Luna makes here on the blog soon! You can see all of my Pantsalong blog posts on the Luna Page.
